When it comes to his ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk, Kanye West is far from heartless.
On September 26, Vogue posted a video of the Donda rapper and the model, whom he had a brief relationship with last year, hugging backstage at the Burberry fashion show.
Ye appeared in the video wearing a black leather jacket, black leggings, and diamond-encrusted flip-flops, while Irina, a model for Burberry, appeared in a black strapless gown with a bow pattern on the back. The founder of Yeezy hugged his ex while she giggled and said, "I got you."
After only two months of dating, the two decided to part ways. It has been more than a year since their brief reunion.
Although they have known one another for a long time, Ye and Irina—who has a daughter named Lea, 5, with her ex Bradley Cooper—first raised romance speculations in June 2021 when they were seen together in the upscale French hotel Villa La Coste to celebrate the rapper's 44th birthday.
An observer at the time told E! News that "they spent a lot of time at their hotel wandering through the vineyards and enjoying the property." "They also went on walks through the neighbourhood admiring the artwork and buildings. Any opportunity he got, Kanye took pictures of Irina. She enjoyed posing for him, and he became deeply involved in the images he was producing. She resembles his muse."
However, their brief romance ended abruptly two months later. When Ye and Irina separated up in August 2021, People was the first to break the news. A source informed them that "it was never a serious thing that took off."
Ye was concentrating on his job and spending time with his children, North West, 9, Saint West, 6, Chicago West, 4, and Psalm West, 3, whom he shares with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, according to a second person who spoke to the magazine.
According to the insider, "He doesn't currently have the time to date. Irina, though, amazes him. They continue to be cordial."
